PNP plans to procure taser guns to be used in violent situations




The Philippine National Police (PNP) as an  organization is planning to acquire taser guns for handling violent situations this time where enhanced community quarantine violations are being done by civilians.

“It is part of the plan of PNP. We call it non-violent or those equipment other than the firearms. Lumalabas dito yung mga taser (the taser falls under this),” PNP chief Gen. Archie Gamboa said.

“All of these things are being evaluated by the Directorate of Logistics under the procurement management committee who deliberates on what to procure,” he added.

The PNP is making its efforts to be a more responsive to the need of the times, after the police received criticisms from human rights groups due to the reported abuses, which was more highlighted when Police Senior Master Sergeant Roland Von Madrona attempted to arrest Javier Parra 
inside a private village in Makati city.



The arrest was supposed o be against Parra’s househelp which was watering the plants without wearing a mask outside the residence.
